PC Advisor's 30 great Valentine's day gifts

30 romantic technology presents for February 14

If music be the food of love, part II

It's not too late spoil your loved one this 14 February. Whether you're aiming to woo a new flame or simply keep the home fires burning, we've got technological gifts both large and small that will make you popular this Valentine's day.

Digital audio accessories

Of course, if your Valentine already has sufficient digital audio player, there are a plethora of digital audio accessories that make terrific gifts.

Intempo iPod nano dock

If the woman in your life has a thing for pink, you've probably already got her an iPod nano in her favourite hue. If so, how about splashing out £40 a matching iPod nano dock from Intempo so she can listen to her tunes and recharge her player as she gets herself dolled up for a night on the town?

Ferguson Hill FH007

Talk about making an understated style statement. We're guessing these huge but completely translucent speakers are aimed at those keen to impress without appearing to be flash Harrys. These Ferguson Hill FH007 speakers more than fit the bill here and are sure to win your beloved's heart.

Ion iPTUSB Portable USB Turntable

The USB turntable – which enables you to rip your vinyl records and digitise them for posterity – was a runaway success. Now, maker Ion has made a sleeker, more polished version that fits inside a standard record case so you can take it out on the road or round to a friend's house. The Ion iPTUSB Portable USB Turntable comes with EX Vinyl Converter software, while the Gracenote MusicID database recognises tracks and adds their details to your music library. It costs £90 inc VAT from www.firebox.com.

More options

For a top of the range digital audio speaker set, our current favourite is the £259 inc VAT Voix MPX & MPY iPod and iPhone speaker set. Or for around £69 you could invest in the quirky, but none the less worthy, Motorola MotoRokr T505 in-car speakerphone. Finally, if your better half is lucky enough to already own an Apple iPhone, you could get them a case to help them keep it pristine - the £29 Otterbox Defender is about as much protection as you can give an iPhone short of hiring a phalanx of bodyguards.
